Elmer Smith 6 mile marker! My SGV TNT fellow team member Judy, and me 1/2 way in to our 1st 12 mile run on 1/19/13
I never thought I would be able to run 12 miles
I never thought that I would enjoy exercise
I never thought that I would love being part of a team
I never thought I would be running my 1st 10k race this weekend
I never thought I would meet so many amazing people, with so many amazing stories
I never thought I would be able to say : "I'm training for the L.A. Marathon, and I am loving it!"
I did, I am, I do, I will, I'm thankful, I can :) Go Team!
Thank You so much to ALL who have contributed so far to the LLS through my fundraising page. Your generosity is sincerely appreciated and admired by myself, my fellow TNT team members and everyone you will be helping with your contribution to fight and find cures for blood cancers.

I am currently training for the L.A. Marathon...my very first! I am running with my best friend, Sandra. We are both members of the LSS San Gabriel Valley Team In Training.
We are both attempting to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)--which uses such funding to research cures and treatments for blood cancers. I've met the most incredible group of people with TNT, some of them cancer survivors, some of them family members or friends of those who are currently fighting their battles. Some are running in the memory of others.
I am running for friends and relatives I have lost to cancer, as well as for our family friend Ruthie, who is getting discharged from the hospital today after receiving successful treatment for her Lymphoma! Go Ruthie!! Go Team!!

My Fundraising Page
Jan 08, 2013
Welcome to my Team In Training home page.
I'm running to find a cure! My goal is to complete the Los Angeles Marathon 2013 and raise $1800 at the same time!
It is my time to accomplish something great and to give back at the same time.
I have a mission - to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers. To accomplish that mission, I’m participating in a sports endurance event as a member of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Team In Training. Like the other members of TNT, I will be raising funds to help find cures and better treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. I’m improving the quality of my life by participating and with your support, I can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families as well.
I have many connections to cancer through family and friends and I'm sure so do you.
Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help advance the research for cures. Thank You!
